When I met him, as soon as he walked through the door, He just put me at ease.
His demeanor. His calmness. The way he explained everything.
And you know I thought right away, before I would even say yes or whatever.
He said he works out of different hospitals. I didn’t know that.
And he only had certain days left on his calendar to work out at OSF where I wanted to go.
So December was taken. January was taken, and I said, “When’s the next time? When’s the next time?” And he said, “February.”
I got it, I want it; mark me down, and that was it.
I want you.
Well that lady there, was going to be having hip surgery by Dr. Antonacci.
And she was bonkers. Well, I was a little nervous too.
You know you’re skeptical when you have an operation.
And she said, “She doesn’t have a walker. She doesn’t have a cane.”
Well, I healed so quickly for my age.
He’s astonished at how well I did.
I’m 80, so…
I did pretty good.
And I told Dr. Antonacci, “I even jog.” “Don’t you dare jog.” He said, “You’re not fully ready for jogging yet.”
I mean, that’s how good I feel.
This hip operation. You know when I went to see him, he asked me “How’s your hip?”
Oh, did I have a hip operation? I didn’t know that. I don’t even remember that.
Have faith in him. Just have faith in him.
I have to use this quote, “Dr. Antonacci has the artistic, surgical hands of Michelangelo, and I have the artwork to prove it.
He’s good; he’s great, and I have passed his name on to so many people.
And I have run into so many people who had him.
“Oh! You had Dr. Antonacci!”
Everybody’s talking about Dr. Antonacci.
